Can your CAV handle the road as well as a bullet?A new Publicly Available Standard will have some questions for up-armoured vehicles. Did you know that the extra weight of armour and other equipment can make civilian
armoured vehicles (CAV's) unsafe on roads? Did you know that there is no standard by which vehicle assessments are made, after vehicles have been up-armoured? At the end of 2016/early 2017, a new Publicly Available Standard (PAS) will be available to test the automotive capability of civilian up-armoured vehicles. It will check for performance and payload and check the handling of vehicles in armoured form. You may be concerned to know how your existing fleet matches up to the forthcoming Publicly Available Standard 301. Our simple self-assessment checklist will help you identify where your existing fleet may not be road safe, what to do in that case, and what to look for in any new vehicles.
